Fortnite 2.59 Update Patch Notes (12.00.2)

The Fortnite 2.59 update patch notes (12.00.2) are here. This new update today, February 27, tackles the performance issues that have been impacting the game since the launch of 12.00. Initially, the new Fortnite update will roll out to PS4, but developer Epic Games is aiming to also distribute these performance improvements to PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android. Use your system’s “Check for update” function if the patch doesn’t automatically download and install.

As mentioned in this article introduction, the 2.59 update is initially being rolled out to the PS4 platform. However, with the FPS drops affecting all platforms (as confirmed on the official Fortnite Trello board), this new patch will eventually be making its way to all other supported platforms. If you don’t see the new update available yet on PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, iOS, or Android, rest assured that Epic Games intends to eventually roll it out.

If you’ve downloaded the 2.59 update on PS4, you’ll be able to view the following patch notes by hitting “Update History”:

Unfortunately, these patch notes are just copied and pasted from the previous update. Epic Games rarely provides additional details in the PS4 summary.

Here’s hoping the new patch helps with the FPS drops, making for a smoother Fortnite experience.
